Do you have used soda bottles lying around at home? Instead of throwing them away, you can easily repurpose them. Put those old bottles to good use and turn them into a piggy bank.

This is perfect when you’re trying to save up for a trip or a favourite pair of shoes. You can also give these bottle piggy banks as a gift.

You may customize it according to your preference. If you wish to be really creative, you can do away with the usual pink colour. Paint your bottle piggy bank any colour you want – go crazy! Your imagination is the limit.

Gather your tools and materials and start creating!
